Will it come back to bite you?


Dear Karma Cleanser:

I can't believe this shit is happening to me. I was drunk at my friend Ben's apartment, and threw up (again) in his bathtub. This keeps happening. When I came out of the bathroom, Ben's friends were all laughing really hard and pointing at me and one of them said, "This is so going in Ben's blog."

I've only known Ben for, like, three weeks, but he's like my new best friend this semester, and he's never mentioned that he has a blog. So I did some digging. The asshole has been blogging about me since we first met. Apparently I'm known as "The Cocktail Queen" on his blog. Will bad karma come back to bite this guy on his ass for publishing rude things about his supposed "friends"?

You're right to be angry that your "friend" spilled personal details about your life online, though at least he had the decency not to use your real name. Then again, maybe the bathroom incident and resultant public humiliation is actually the universe's way of hinting you have a problem.

Dear Karma Cleanser:

A cute boy has just started working in the cubicle next to mine. He's young, listens to punk rock, wears a black arm band to work and hangs out in bars I'd never dare go to. I think I'm falling for him fast. But I already know I'm not his type: I'm a few years older, with real-woman "curves" and real bills to pay. Is it stupid for me to look back, or should I jump in anyway?

What's your question, exactly? Should you hit on the hottie next door? Is there any harm in acting like you're 22 again? These are all fascinating questions, but ones you have to answer for yourself. We're guessing you're going to go for it either way.

Been bad?
